There is also a motorized version that works with a remote.
I had some bamboo shades on the front porch for awhile, but had to take them down. Red wasps decided them shades were the upscale portion of the neighborhood and entire families moved in all along it's rolled up length.
GB, not sure how much you liked your shades but if you want to use them again I will give you a guaranteed foolproof remedy. Ever heard of TempoSC? It’s a pesticide. They may have it at TSC. I buy it locally at the fertilizer dealer. Works wonders. I mix a bottle (I think it’s a pint can’t remember) to a 25 gallon atv sprayer. I spray my house, barns, kennels and any other ‘structures’. I only spray the exterior. It’s labeled for interior use as well. Safe as soon as it drys. I spray the brick, siding, eaves, ceilings, doors, windows, foundation vents, electrical boxes and anything else. Offers a reliable 6 month residual. I do it in April and October. I have no wasps, carpenter bees, dirt daubers, spiders, roaches, ants, termites, and very few skeeters. Doesn’t help with the gnats at all. I promise you won’t be disappointed. $55/bottle here.
One word of warning. Do not spray your cricket box and/or boat. I have a friend who sprayed his cricket box while it was in his utility room. Put crickets in it 3-4 months later and struck out for the river. When he got there they were ALL dead. Took us a while to figure out why.
